Hi,

Dessert is often eaten at the end of a meal after the main course and can consist of some kind of tart or fresh fruit or ice cream.

Hi Marica,

'Get away with' suggests that you can do something and not be punished for doing it or prevented from doing it.

I would eat sweet foods (cakes, biscuits, puddings, etc.) non-stop if that were possible.

24/7 is an abbreviation for a time period of 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That is 'without stopping.'
